The Culotte at 5'1

White culottes Uniqlo, similar - Vintage rainbow silk top Nancy Brunetz, would love to have this one 
Light blue bow flats Gio Zanotti, similar - Metallic satchel Stella Rittwagen -Yellow sweater Tommy Hilfiger, sim

Leather cuff with studs Coach, similar - Vintage bronze key cuff, similar 
I have an odd relationship with culottes. I know they are not meant to be for short people like yours truly at 5'1. But its one of those things you try, then you give up and months later you have amnesia and you buy them again, but in another color or fabric. That's my story with culottes, now in white trying to make them work. 
If there is one thing I am certain about is that I need to wear them with heels, but I chose not to, because well, there are things you know you should do, but you still don't ;)

Tengo una extraña relación con los culottes también conocidos como gauchos. Yo sé que no fueron creados para gente pequeña como yo con 5´1. Pero es una de esas prendas que intentas llevar y te das por vencida y un par de meses después te da amnesia y los compras de nuevo pero en otro color o material. Esta es mi historia con este tipo de pantalones, ahora los compré en blanco y sigo intentando que funcionen.
Si hay algo de lo que estoy totalmente convencida es que necesito llevarlos con zapatos altos, pero decidí no hacerlo, porque ya saben, hay cosas que sabes que debes hacer pero no las haces ;)

I'm on my 3rd pair in the last 5ish years. I had fun with the green ones (I moved them along - they were fun for a bit), then the black ones (too much fabric, too much black), and now I'm on the denim-y ones with crystals on them. I like them, but I can see them leaving my closet in a year or two.

I'm a little taller than you at 5'4" - I always thought we were the same height! Ha, I think I just assume everyone is the same height as me!

Love that rainbow top and your purple ring.

I like these culottes on you! I think being petite the length is the hard part - these are a great length on you though, almost like a midi skirt! :)

Hope you are having a lovely start to your week! :) It's starting to warm up here which is nice, although it's still so cold in the morning!

There are things i wear that I know don't flatter me, but I love them and wear them anyway! I actually think these culottes look great on you! I love the bright colored blouse you paired with them!

I like the culottes, they make a great outfit with your rainbow striped top and the relaxed look of your sweater tied around your neck! BTW, thanks so much for your sweet comments on my posts!

Como bien dices Lorena a las bajitas nos favorecen más los culottes con un poquito de tacón... ¡pero creo que estás igualmente ideal con el zapatos plano!
¡Y que sepas que me encanta el top!

Ohh I really like the length of yours! And I totally think they can work with flats. A few years ago I balked at old photos of myself wearing culottes back in high school, but now I've embraced them again.
